The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) defines Biotechnology as: "any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms, or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use". According to Dr. Rita Colwell, Director, National Science Foundation, USA, the apt definition is making money from Biology. Biotechnology involves application of scientific and engineering principles to provide goods and services through mediation of biological agents. Traditional application includes antibiotic production through fermentation, microbial sewage treatment and water purification. Modem molecular biotechnology involves gene manipulation and gene transfer, DNA typing, bacterial cloning for production of biomolecules etc.
